.git/config now includes

repositoryformatversion = 0
filemode = true
bare = false
logallrefupdates = true
[remote "origin"]
url = /pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[branch "master"]
remote = origin
merge = refs/heads/master

now works fine and displays exactly what I expect so things have improved.
